1 Powerspeak 12 AP French Syllabus College Board Syllabus # v1 Authorized Our Mission To offer access and opportunity for all students to gain culturally-authentic world language reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills that students will need to become college and career-ready in a 21st Century global marketplace. Course Description Our online AP French Language course is an advanced language course in which students acquire proficiencies that expand their cognitive, analytical and communicative skills. The AP French Language course prepares them for the AP French exam. It uses as its foundation the three modes of communication (Interpersonal, Interpretive and Presentational) as defined in the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. The course is designed as an immersion experience requiring the use of French exclusively. The online learning coach only uses French to communicate with students. In addition, all the reading, listening, speaking and writing is in French. The course is based on the six themes required by the College Board, namely, 1. Global challenges 2. Science and technology 3. Contemporary life 4. Personal and public identities 5. Families and communities 6. Beauty and aesthetics The course teaches language structures in context and focuses on the development of fluency to convey meaning. Students explore culture in both contemporary and historical contexts to develop an awareness and appreciation of cultural products, practices, and perspectives. The course contains a forum where students share their own opinions and comments and comment on other students posts. The course makes great use of the Internet for updated and current material. Course Objectives After completing this course, students will be able to: Listen, read, understand, and interpret a wide-variety of authentic French-language materials and sources.

2 Demonstrate proficiency in interpersonal, interpretive, and presentational communication using French. Gain knowledge and understanding of the cultures of the Francophone world. Use French to connect with other disciplines and expand knowledge in a wide-variety of contexts. Develop insight into the nature of the French language and its culture. Use French to participate in communities at home and around the world. Prerequisites The AP French course is a college level course. The intensity, quality, and amount of materials can be compared to a third-year college course. Course Organization The course contains 10 units divided into two semesters. Every 2-3 weeks, a new sub-theme is introduced within the 6 themes required by the College Board. Within that theme, students work on all aspects of communication: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Activities include the three modes of communication: interpretive, interpersonal and presentational. Student work is continually assessed based on various writing and speaking assignments which are graded according to the AP guidelines. In addition, a final assessment is given at the end of each theme. The course contains several AP exam practices or mock exams to get students used to the format of the test. Each unit is based on an overall theme and highlights a specific francophone country or region of the French-speaking world. Each unit is divided into either two or three smaller lessons, each of which contains approximately thirty to forty different activities, practices, and assessments for students to participate in and complete. The activities and assignments in this course are specifically designed to help students improve their skills in all French communicative areas and to prepare them for the AP Exam. Not only are the tests, midterms, semester final exams, and AP test practices structured to assess the students complete understanding of all the information presented and skills practiced, they give them great practice for the AP test. Weekly/Unit Activities Students write several paragraphs and/or forum posts in which they respond to and interact with the teacher and other students. o The various prompts (typically related to one of the six themes) ask students to analyze a specific aspect of a theme, make cultural comparisons, and comment on the posts of

3 other students. These paragraphs/posts are evaluated based on a student s use of various vocabulary words, grammatical structures, language structures in context, and overall fluency to convey meaning. Students record themselves speaking in French. The teacher listens to and provides feedback on all the recordings. o Students respond to prompts/authentic resources where they are asked to express their thoughts and opinions about various topics. o Students provide oral summaries and interpretations of various authentic and semiauthentic audio, visual, and audio-visual resources. o Students engage in interpretive communication through regular activities based on podcasts, maps, charts, and photographs.
